Maybe the caller was only trying to make sure the pumps were clear in case any Wisconsin Senate fleebaggers needed to top off the tank for another escape to Illinois.

From WBAY-TV:

A Sheboygan gas station owner is baffled after a mystery caller tells a clerk it’s a bad idea to do business with a Sheboygan-area state senator.

It started Tuesday when a woman called Dick Hiers’s Northeast Standard gas station after she thought she saw Senator Joe Leibham there. Her call was caught on the answering machine.
[…]
The answering machine here in the back of the store was left on from the night before and was recording the entire conversation.

Caller: “Can you verify that was Senator Leibham at the gas station this morning?”

Gas station clerk: “Senator Leibham?”

Caller: “Yes. Do you guys support him?”

Clerk: “I have nothing to say about that, I am not politically involved.”

Caller: “Alright, well you can tell Dick he’s not good for business, I’ll tell you that.”

Shocked over the 26-second conversation, Hiers quickly traced the call — only to get surprise number two.

“And it turned out to be coming from the Sheboygan area district school office,” he said.

“Obviously our school district equipment and the facilities are for the purposes of school,” Superintendent Joseph Sheehan responded. “Any type of phone call leaving any types of threats or condoning any type of intimidation is strictly prohibited.”

The superintendent, who was out of the area Friday, said the district’s taken what it calls “appropriate disciplinary action.”

The woman is a district employee but school officials say that 8:15 call was made before she was on the clock.

As it turns out, the person in question wasn’t even the Senator, but rather his brother — which according to established threat etiquette means the school employee should have instead had her sister make the call… at least I think that’s what the protocol should have been.

The school should check their records to see if there have been any calls made recently to an Iowa office supply company. Just curious.
